FYI this post is completely self-absorbed and probably of little value to you unless you are also completely and suddenly obsessed with shopping online.  I am never going to stop.  Thank goodness H does not read this!

1.  A MadMen-inspired slip I saw in Redbook Magazine, my totally favorite magazine in the world.  According to page 42 of the February 2012 Redbook, if I wear it I will have the body of Joan Holloway Harris.  [ha!]  And, it’s on sale this week.  Convenient?  Yes.  Coincidence?  I’m not so sure.  So, I considered linking to the slip and then I got totally skeeved out that some weirdo guy would know intimate details about me and so I deleted it and then re-linked and deleted again and at this point I am not making any more changes.  But if you are interested in looking like Joan Holloway Harris too, I will hook you up.  Just let me know. 

2.  A surprise for my mom [so I obviously can’t post it yet!] from the Pampered Chef!  It will be a combo birthday-valentines gift because I am TERRIBLE at sending things on time, and hopefully she will like it.  But if not, it’s something I would like, so it’s win-win.  Just kidding Mom!  I know you will like it. 

3.  A white lace dress from Banana Republic for upcoming KD events.

It may be hard to tell in this white-on-white-on-white background, but I think it will be cute and easy to wear in non-secret settings.  With a spring-colored cardigan and sandals, it can be great in the office during the summer.  With fancy earrings and pumps, it can be fancy-shmancy.  But right now I’m thinking it will be super cute with my buckled tan leather boots and motorcycle jacket.  But I’ll have to see it in person first.

What I bought online this week:

  • I think that dress is going a wonderful choice – and could totally be worn in normal settings 🙂 And you are going to have to let me in on the Mad Men slip secret…If I can look like Joan I need to know the details!

    • Thanks! I will send the info over via FB message — and you are not the only one who wants it! Glad I can provide such a valuable service to the young professional women of America.

  • I saw that white dress when you posted it on Facebook. Love it. Makes me want to go on a shopping spree at Banana Republic.

    • Thanks, Mary! I’m kind of hard to fit but I’m excited and hoping that it works out. I have been following JuJu very closely and am glad to see he is not getting less-cute as he ages. 🙂

    I love your addiction with online shopping! It makes me wish we lived closer so I could raid your closet! You should totally send me a picture of this slip, I have never watched Mad Men and am now super intrigued.

    • MadMen is kind of depressing for the first season or two, but it is free on Netflix instant watch and I think you would really like it. I hated it at first, but then couldn’t stop watching. And Joan is SO GOOD LOOKING. Seriously, she has it going on in all the right places. 😉
